Some of us have a nagging double chin that won’t go away, even if we work out every day and follow a healthy diet. It’s an area of the body that retains stubborn fat that’s almost impossible to get rid of by practicing healthy habits like these.

The factors that contribute to the development of a double chin include an increase in weight, poor lifestyle habits, and even genetics. There are also some medical conditions such as an enlarged thyroid that can lead to the formation of a double-chin as well.

Whatever the case may be, it is annoying to have to deal with a double chin. Fortunately, there is a solution to this troublesome problem. With the help of Kybella, you can say goodbye to that double chin and hello to a more defined facial structure. This treatment is a fat melting injectable designed especially to remove fat from your chin area.

What is Kybella?

Kybella is an FDA approved cosmetic treatment designed to remove fat from the chin area and redefine your facial profile. It is composed of deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that can help break down fat.

It is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatment that can be done without causing any downtime. Kybella is used for the treatment of moderate to severe submental fat. Before Kybella was approved, people who wanted to get rid of their double chins would have to opt for a liposuction surgery. This options is much faster, more efficient, and highly effective.

How Does Kybella Work?

The active ingredient in Kybella is synthetic deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat. It works by disrupting fat cell membranes, which causes destroys the fat cells.

After injecting Kybella beneath the chin, it results in a noticeable reduction of fat in the chin area. This results in less fullness and a more aesthetically pleasing profile. When the membrane of the cell is destroyed, the fatty contents are released into the bloodstream. They are naturally metabolized by the body overtime.

First, you consult with your doctor, the area under your chin is examined and your doctor will determine whether Kybella is right for you. Your doctor will then create a treatment that is right for you and the amount of fat present under your chin to achieve your aesthetic goals.

Kybella can only be administered by an experienced plastic surgeon with a keen eye and attention to detail. Before the treatment begins, your doctor will mark the areas to be treated. A topical numbing anesthetic is administered by your doctor to avoid any discomfort during the procedure.

Kybella is then injected directly into the skin under your chin. The number of injections used to gain the desired result will vary depending on the amount of fat deposited under your chin.

The Kybella treatment must be administered up to six times to be fully effective. The number of injections that you require and sessions required to achieve your goal will be determined by your doctor.
